NHS Dental checks FREE for all children - Oral Health Campaign
From 13th May to 13th June 2019 there will be an NHS England Community Pharmacy Campaign focussing on the oral health of children, primarily the 0-5 age range.
It is timed to coincide with National Smile Month and so increase public awareness of good oral health.
This poster campaign will be available to all pharmacies in England, and will feature a poster in the pharmacy along with a children's brushing chart and information leaflet, alongside any displays the pharmacy may wish to make.
Pharmacy teams have been offered access to the Centre for Pharmacy Postgraduate Education (CPPE)'s children's oral health training module as well as a resource pack; which will range from
- tips on brushing
- use of age appropriate fluoride toothpaste,
- to dietary advice, sugar free medicines
- and signposting to local dental health services.
Look for this campaign when you are visiting your local high street.
The aim is to raise public and professional awareness of the benefits of good oral health, to promote Dental Check by 1, and the regular dental attendance of children.
